Perfect Poinsettias

Hi friends, Jen here. Today I'm sharing a couple cards from the Perfect Poinsettias stamp set Polkadoodles have just released. 
Nikky's stamps are amazing and I really enjoyed using the entire collection. I'm not a keen gardener so had no idea whether poinsettias were blue or not but I felt they would look beautiful so dug out my Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens and and went to work. 
Card One Instructions: 
  • Stamp out a clean and simple design with one poinsettia and three leaves using a little masking using Versafine Black Ink. 
  • Poinsettia watercoloured with Blue Velvet and True Turquoise Aqua Flow Pens. 
  • Holly leaves watercoloured with Evergreen Fern and Sliced Kiwi. 
  • Watercolour the background with Yellow Ocre, Caramel Pecan and then go on for darker shadows with Rustic Oak Aqua Flows. 
  • Colour in the centre of the flower with any bright yellow you have. I used a yellow colour pencil. 
  • Mat and layer using navy blue cardstock and some papers from Winter Wishes Polkadoodles paper pad. 
  • Stencil white gesso over your floral arrangement using the snowy bubble stencil. 
  • Cut out the smaller poinsettia three more times, colour as before and layer on your card. 
  • Add sequins and a christmas word die cut to complete the design. 
Card Two Instructions
This card is Clean, simple and flat. You can easily batch make this design for your Christmas cards, changing the colours and sentiment for some variation on design. 
  • Use the same colours as card. 
  • Add orange to the centre of the poinsettia, add a celebrate die cut and mat onto am A2 card blank. 
There we have it. These stamp sets have so many possibilities and they're beautifully designed. 
Thank you very much for visiting me today and I hope that you like the designs I've shared.
